and liberal inaugural address and some of your fellow republicans said this. i'm going to start with john mccain. he said he would have liked to hear more outreach while ohio republican rob portman tweeted this. my disappointment was in the speech i think the president missed an opportunity to talk about where we can find common ground. steve king tweeted this, awesome and shockingly liberal address. an epic realignment. so some people said not at all, other people said what i just read. what's your take? >> well, you know, the president won the election so he's certainly entitled to pursue his agenda. i thought it would have been more effective though if he had spoken more in thematic terms. by being as precise as he was is laying out a liberal agenda which is what's usually done in a state of the union. in going back to ronald regan's address, government is not the problem. those are general statements. i thought the way he got specific yesterday made it more of a, again, almost campaign type of address. he's an excellent speaker. even how he was distinguishing the issues, implying that de

about how the hostage crisis ended today? >> well, john, you can definitely say that it was very violent. in fact, we're still trying to pin down the numbers. you know, as the algerian news agency said, 23 hostages were killed. 32 terrorists were killed. but that area was mined. and, in fact, the british foreign secretary just talked about that, that it was booby trapped. so as now they go in to clear it and make it safe, there is a lot that they may not know. and is still not a clear -- the operation is over, but it's not a cleared-out space. they could find things as they go through. let's listen to the defense secretary, leon panetta. he said it very well this afternoon. >> with regards to the numbers of americans, we are still trying to get accurate information about just exactly how many americans were located there and exactly what happened to them. >> and so that is really the key. everyone who had people in that location, at that plant, is trying right now. those countries are trying to find out exactly what happened to every single person who was involved. don, we -- at this poi
